    Hackintosh build aiuto

    Salve, vorrei fare un Hackintosh come da titolo, solo che avendo poco budget volevo chiedere se la mia attuale postazione fosse buona e ci fossero componenti compatibili per mac: i5 4590 h97 pro4 amd r9 280x ram 2x4 1600 alu 620w Se non erro però la gru non dovrebbe esserlo dato che è amd. Grazie in anticipo
  2. Hello community! I searched everywhere, but couldn't find tables from one or both of these two macbooks, if someone here has these models, please, could you share the acpi tables with me? I really need them. Thanks
  3. PREFACE I’ve used a 2015 15” MBP as my main system since it was released. I do photo and video editing in the Adobe suite regularly and have been eyeballing the performance of the latest MBP models. I’m on the road all the time, so a laptop is basically my only option. After the whole mess with the CPU VRM hardware flaws being made apparent by the poor power management profile shipped at release with the 2018 i9 MBP I’ve been more weary of the hardware design of MacBooks. That’s before I account for losing all USB-A ports, losing the SD card slot (‽), losing reliability and tactility of the keyboard, and losing the ESC key to the touchbar; if I compare the 2018 MBP to my current 2015. Given these flaws, I have been researching the performance situation comparing the 2018 MBP to the X1 Extreme, XPS 15 9570, and the Razer Blade 15 2018. These are essentially the only options for a road warrior that needs a high quality panel and the best CPU and GPU that can be crammed into around 4lbs (1.8kg). I used to use a ThinkPad T42p and loved it when it was new. So fast forward to now and the release of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. It’s a truly tempting machine for an artist, given that the 4K UHD version offers just about the best color gamut available on any laptop panel. I get back the USB-A ports, get one of the fastest SD slots on any laptop, and get one of the best laptop keyboards on the market. That’s before even considering power management and modularity. I’ve been dabbling in learning Machine Learning, so a system with an nVidia GPU (CUDA) is a bonus on that front as well. For me the best color reproduction on a high resolution display panel was most important. The X1 Extreme has that, so I’ve ordered one. I got it with the fastest i7, base SSD and memory, and have separately purchased two 1TB Samsung 970 Pro M.2 SSDs and 2x16GB DDR4-3200MHz memory (just in case it’s possible to overclock the memory on the X1 Extreme). I got the system for $2,100 from Lenovo USA, and the SSDs ($390 x 2) and memory ($330) from Amazon US for a total of ~$3200. These are easy to install on the X1 Extreme as the bottom cover is easily removed to reveal the M.2 and SODIMM slots. To compare, the 2018 MBP with the fastest i7, 32GB memory, and 2TB SSD is $4400. So I can save $1200 and get a faster system (on all counts) with a better panel and better connectivity by going with the X1 Extreme. The only thing I’m compromising is losing the big beautiful haptic touchpad and a bit more refined hardware aesthetic. Though, to be honest, I’ve kept a big thick dual-layer Tech21 case on my 2015 MBP. So I’ll actually be going down in volume and weight by moving to the more rugged ThinkPad. I think I can live without the touchpad. Oh, by the way, the 4K UHD panel of the X1 Extreme has touch and decent pen support! Another bonus vs. the MacBook. Though I keep a 12.9” iPad Pro around for my pen work and can’t imagine using a laptop similarly. It’s still nice to have a laptop screen actually respond when I go poke at it accidentally after switching back and forth between laptop and iPad. TOPIC So I want macOS with proper discrete GPU support on a 2018 MacBook class laptop. That’s not possible on a pure Hackintosh as things stand, but via a macOS virtual machine it looks like it could work with what looks like some relatively bleeding edge support of PCIe UEFI passthrough. People have been doing this on Linux hosts to Windows VMs with some great success recently: https://gist.github.com/Misairu-G/616f7b2756c488148b7309addc940b28 And it looks like that’s coming for macOS VMs as well: https://github.com/kholia/OSX-KVM/blob/a4fb2fd5aae871bdbc371b0cd31d4d8129d0f9ac/UEFI/README.md The X1 Extreme, XPS 15 9570, and Razer Blade 15 (2018) are essentially direct competition to the 2018 15” MBP. I would really like to see these three systems get some nicely fleshed out guides for getting maxed out compatibility and performance in macOS running in a VM for these systems. When I get my X1 Extreme I’ll start working on it for that one. I will post updates here. I hope to inspire others with the other two systems (or looking to get them) to do similarly. 15” MACBOOK CLASS LAPTOP COMPARISON I chose the X1 Extreme largely because of the excellent 4K UHD HDR panel (100% of 2D AdobeRGB and 85.5% of 3D AdobeRGB, basically unparalleled), good mix of thermal performance and noise management, and overall ruggedness and connectivity. If I were a gamer I would go with the Razer 15, but the fast low-gamut 1080p panel just doesn’t work for my purposes. If I were most concerned with aesthetics or battery life (97Wh battery for it vs 80Wh for X1E) I would go with the XPS 15. I am aware that the second 2018 refresh of the MBP is coming ~Nov 14, with the new AMD Radeon Pro Vega 16 and Vega 20 GPUs, and it looks like the latter might offer up to a 60% performance boost over the Radeon 560X. Maybe it has even given Apple enough time to update the CPU VRM along the way. This could make the performance picture more comparable for the 1050 Ti based X1E and XPS 15. I believe the 1070 Ti based Razer 15 will still win out though. Still, if you compare the fan and heat pipe solution put into the X1E vs the MBP the MBP just looks wimpy in comparison. MBP has smaller fans, less venting, and only one (smaller, thinner) heatpipe. It’s also more difficult to access if you want to put a better thermal paste or liquid metal on it. Put simply, the thermal hardware on the MBP is basically the same design for the last 3 years and it can’t keep up with the hex-core processors. So even with the Volta 20 GPU making the MBP competitive again on the graphics end, the MBP will still be falling short on the CPU performance plane. This is before we even look at tuning options. Getting into tuning, it’s possible to improve thermal performance of all the laptops in this class by around 15-20% by using either a best in class thermal paste like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or (if you’re willing to deal with all the caveats that come with using a conductive fluid that permeates other metals) a liquid metal interface like Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. The liquid metal gives you the best possible conducting interface, and the paste is more forgiving and easier to apply. Further, it is often possible to stably undervolt the Coffee Lake i7/i9 available in this class of systems to further improve performance, thermals, and power consumption (generally another 10+%). Apple has deliberately made it impossible to undervolt the CPU on the MBP! This has been true since the first Skylake CPUs a few years ago. You used to be able to use a program called Volta to undervolt your CPU on macOS. This is a huge peeve for me and, combined with the general power and thermal underdevelopment, is one of the main reasons I want to get a competitor’s hardware. As a primer, the default voltage of modern CPUs is typically set conservatively high for the sake of production efficiency. With the current generation Coffee Lake CPUs it is commonly possible to set the CPU voltage about 100 to 150mv lower safely. This allows the CPU to run cooler and consume less power. For laptops which are thermally limited (basically everything in this new 6-core 14nm era), this also translates into better performance. It’s a tweak that actually improves reliability of your CPU. So it’s just stupid that Apple has deliberately made this impossible. Shame on them, someone else take my money. Wrapping up, my biggest quibbles with the X1E (before actually getting it) are that the 4K panel’s responsiveness is about the slowest I’ve seen on a modern panel, and it’s just really not suitable for gaming. There’s also what I consider an annoyingly high level of backlight corner bleed that I’m sure will be distracting during blackboxed video viewing. Hopefully these two issues will be fixed in next year’s iteration. FOOTNOTES MacBook i9 Thermal / VRM (below-baseline throttling/thrashing) Issue: https://www.macrumors.com/2018/07/24/throttling-i9-macbook-pro-power-delivery-chip/ https://www.kitguru.net/lifestyle/mobile/apple/matthew-wilson/macbook-pro-2018-throttling-fix/ This was mitigated with software that works around the poor hardware design, but the system would still ultimately perform better if the CPU VRM were redesigned. Non Mac systems with the similar CPUs don’t have this issue and get better sustained performance.

  5. Hi! I’m starting a designing course and I’ve been told a Macbook is the best option to handle specific softwares like adobe Photoshop perfectly. Right now, i’m studying in Lisbon, Portugal. So, I would need to buy it from some Portuguese store, in case I need to claim warranty. Anyway, I started my search and found som results, fort some Portuguese stores , i’ll leave a link below. I'm aware that a desktops like a Mac Pro would be a much suitable solution, but I need a laptop to take to classes. I think a 13” Model is enough since the retina screen helps me see details better, but I don’t understand the software requirements for each type of software. What do you guys think I sould buy? Feel free to make any question or suggestion! My research:https://www.tecmagnet.com/produtos/equipamento/portateis?pagina=1&q=Apple+-+13%22+-+13-9%22+-+&id_marca=13&query=%5B%5B%2219%22%2C%2269%22%5D%5D

  7. Ciao a tutti, mi aiutate a risolvere questa curiosità? Io so che: quando una persona naviga in internet ha sia un indirizzo ip legato alla rete che utilizza sia un indirizzo ip interno alla rete per distinguersi dagli altri dispositivi connessi. La mia domanda è: (io uso un macbook air) esiste anche un 'indirizzo' della macchina in sé che appare o che può venire rintracciato? Se io utilizzo un pc da una rete c'è la possibilità che confrontando ipotetici dati ci si accorga che l'ho utilizzato anche da un'altra rete? Sia chiaro che parlo di casi estremi! immagino che per noi comuni mortali non sia possibile, magari per la polizia postale sì! Voi ne avete idea? Buon pomeriggio
  8. Damn, I got excited to try out the new features in El Capitan that instead of making another virtual machine, installed it on my main OS. I use this for work and i have a boot camp partition that I also use for work (Develop apps that links to our main system [Windows Based]) After I updated to the beta version, I couldn't start up my Boot Camp partition using Parallels, I tried everything. Installing with out a source and trying to select my boot camp, but it can't be found. I booted off windows so I know its fine, anyone have any suggestions? Am I screwed? My Boot Camp partition doesn't even show up :\ It does show up on Finder though

  11. Salve, sto iniziando a realizzare app per iphone, e fino ad oggi ho utilizzato osx tramite vmware. Però la cosa è diventata un po ingestibile, quindi avevo pensato di prendere un notebook, in modo da poterlo portare anche in giro quando serve. Ma vorrei un vostro consiglio. Il bugdet massimo che vorrei investire è sui 600€, ho cercato molto sul mercato dell'usato, trovando anche qualcosa, ma non essendo esperto di pc apple, vorrei evitare fregature. Ecco le mie domande: 1) Mi conviene prendere un macbook 13" air/pro del 2011/2012 sui 600/650€ ? oppure avrei problemi (aggiornamenti, certificati da sviluppatore, etc) visto che sono già vecchi? 2) Esiste un notebook sempre da 13" dove è possibile installare osx ? Cosa mi consigliate di fare?
  12. i have a developers license so i can dl the preview, is it worth getting you think? not sure if reinstalling it when it actually releases is worth the hassle. what would you do

    Asus n550JV

    Welcome on my topic I have an Asus n550JV and I am trying to make as good as possible Mavericks running on it. Specs: Model: Asus n550JV - 15.6 inch Full HD (1920*1080) Ram: 8 GB LDDR3 - 1600 Mhz (Kingston) Cpu: Intel I7-4700HQ Haswell Gpu: Nvidia Geforce GT 750m (4GB) Integrated Gpu: Intel hd graphics 4600 HD: 1 TB (5200 rpm) (yeah I know, slow like hell) It's currently running Mavericks pretty smooth and these are thinghs that are working: - Battery stats (fixed) - Cpu temp, cpu clock speed: HWsensors (fixed) - About Mac - Finder, iTunes, App Store, every app that's available. - Audio (fixed by using VoodooHDA) - DVD-reader (I can eject using F12 or pressing the hardware button, but haven't tested if it can read disks ) - USB 3.0 - Camera (Facetime works ) - Touchpad with multitouch (not perfect but does work 85%+) - Headset socket works (for headphones etc) - ... other thinghs I can't remember or haven't mentioned. Now what does NOT work: - On board WIFI - BT card (Atheros AT 9485) - Sleep doesn't work ;( (Using it a lot, so should be nice if this is fixed) - Battery stats (can be fixed with kexts, but which one? NEED HELP here ) - Not very important but: Can't see how hot my CPU gets or what the clock speed currently is, is this also fixable with kexts? - Low priority: Bass socket from Asus (this is going very far, I don't really need it) An guide that some people would want (Not complete but still should help to get at least Mavericks running on Asus n550jv ) - First make a usb stick with restore from OS X Mavericks (search google, it's almost same everywhere ) - Then make a clover bootable stick using Clover v2: https://mega.co.nz/#...CYwI!Cx-GC02... guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN1f9nleMSI#t=0 - Follow everything in that youtube vid exactly, because it could turnout differently if you don't - Use these modded EFI files and overwrite/merge with EFI partition of usb (credit goes to my russian friend amocc for his amazing work): https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing amocc's profile: http://www.osx86.net...r/508444-amokk/ Another discussion on forum: http://www.insanelym...-3#entry1959561 - Reboot system with usb plugged, check if USB LEGACY is on. And get in bios/efi or whatever and change boot priority for example UEFI: CLOVER boot should be the first one to boot. - Clover bootloader will show up, go to Mac Os installer (or what it is called) and press space than go to without caches and press enter. - Installer will show up, make a Mac Os Extended Journaled partition by going to Utilities than Disk Utility. - Instal, REBOOT back to Installer (trust me). IMPORTANT: Launch Terminal and give these command (change YOUR_Partition!): cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/YOUR_Partition/mach_kernel" - Reboot into OS X (not installer) using without caches. - After configuring your system with username, password you'll appear on desktop. - Now you'll need to use different kexts to fix several issues: For audio go to this link: http://www.projectos...p?showtopic=355 Use the latest one, I used VoodooHDA_v284.zip Than you should edit info.plist in VoodooHDA.kekst

  15. Hello folks, I already posted this on Ask Different but didn't get any good answer yet. It may be too specialized for Ask Different, but I was told I may found kext experts here 1 - Original issue I own a Macbook Pro 15" from Early 2011, which suffers from the well-known-but-denied-by-Apple GPU problem. TL;DR: the AMD Radeon HD 6XX0M is dead and the Macbook can't boot, or can boot but with huge graphic glitches on screen. 2 - Workaround There is a workaround to this problem, which consists to disable the AMD GPU and only use the Intel HD 3000 chipset. The main way to do this is to use a software like gfxCardStatus. However, since my Macbook wasn't booting (stuck on blue screen after Apple logo), I managed to disable my AMD Radeon HD 6490M by entering single-user mode and deleting the following files from /System/Library/Extensions/ : AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle AMDRadeonX3000GLDriver.bundle AMDRadeonX4000GLDriver.bundle ATI2400Controller.kext ATI2600Controller.kext ATI3800Controller.kext ATI4600Controller.kext ATI4800Controller.kext ATI5000Controller.kext ATI6000Controller.kext ATI7000Controller.kext ATIFramebuffer.kext ATIRadeonX2000.kext ATIRadeonX2000GA.plugin ATIRadeonX2000GLDriver.bundle ATIRadeonX2000VADriver.bundle ATISupport.kext 3 - Remaining problems But, as I said, this is just a workaround to get OS X to boot. I now have 2 main issues: - I can't plug an external screen on the Thunderbolt port - I can't play any avi or mkv video I know there isn't any solution for the first issue, since the Intel HD 3000 is not even physically linked to the Thunderbolt port. However, I am looking for a solution to the second issue. The Intel HD 3000 chipset may not be a killer GPU, but I am sure it can handle a simple video, and even 1080p videos. When I open a video file in VLC, I get the following error: And in the logs: I think Mac OS X is trying to get OpenGL acceleration thanks to the AMD GPU. And since the GPU is supposed to work properly, it never tries to get the adequate features from the Intel HD 3000 chipset. So, is there any way to get more from this chipset?
  16. Hello everyone! I currently have the early 2011 Macbook Pro 15" but its been causing me nonstop issues on the bootcamp side and i'm considering selling it and buying a hackintosh-compatible (ML 10.8) ultra book. Even though I got a killer deal and got $400-500 off, I still invested a lot of money on this MacBook pro because it rocks the ATI HD 6750 1gb graphics card. My troubles are with the i7 processor not giving enough processing power when needed, and is causing a lot of micro-stutter and general load issues which I've tried to diagnose and fix for some time now but with no luck. I've tried disabling the W7 core parking, and force enabling turbo-boost using a program called throttlestop but still with no luck. Its not a hardware issue because I just send the whole computer to apple-care and they replaced the logic board and refurbished the whole thing. OK so now that I've explained myself, here's what i'm looking for in a new computer: *Completely 10.8 Hackintosh compatible (ethernet, wifi, graphics, etc) *A quad core processor of some type (preferably one with turbo-boost) *4 gigs of memory *A kickass graphics card (i prefer Nvidia), and a nice bonus feature would be if it had HDMI too *A multi-touch compatible trackpad *Relatively good battery life *MUST be a ultra-book (under 5.6 lbs I believe) I know hackintosh is a constant work in progress and its hard to find a completely compatible notebook, but thats why I'm coming to you guys! There's gotta be 'the one' out there. My budget is around $1200 as that is what I believe I could get for my macbook I currently have. Thank you for your help!

    BootCamp 6 in El Capitain issues

    Hi! I have a MBA mid-2012 running the latest OS. I'm trying to BootCamp a Windows 7 x64 .iso I retrieved from an old hard drive. I copied it on my MBA and every time I try to get BootCamp running, it will mount the .iso, resulting in a beautiful :"Your bootable USB device could not be created." error. I tried unmounting the .iso but BootCamp keeps bringing it back up each time. Also, I tried PRAM/SMC reset, different USB/.iso, pretty much all I could think of. Also, I tried running only the last options of BootCamp after having manually download BootCamp 5 utilities manually, "Install Windows 7 or later version" and I get an error again :"The installer disc could not be found." I'm running out of options.. Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks I have a MBA mid-2012 running latest OS (El Capitain). I am trying to make a bootable USB Windows installation disk (which in theory is possible via BootCamp). The Windows OS I am trying to install is Windows 7 x64. The USB is formatted to FAT32 and MBR.
  18. Hello, I recently installed Octane Render, and since then I've noticed some issues with my Video Memory. I know that I don't have the best Video Card out there, but it has been performing just fine with After Effects and Premiere before I installed Octane. I use iStat Menus to keep track of my system, and for a couple of days now I've noticed that my GeForce won't go above 30FPS and the Memory bar is almost half way full, pretty much all the time, this is without running Octane, Cinema 4D, Premiere or After Effects. Right now I have Spotify running, Chrome and Mail running and this is what Stat Menus shows: I've tried restarting the computer but somehow Memory is always like that. And also, sometimes my cursor gets huge on the screen for a fraction of time, and I've seen glitches on my screen. Again this happens when I'm not using any render heavy applications, and it didn't happen before installing Octane. When using Octane and After Effects, the memory bar of the GPU goes past halfway full, and I understand this, but how do I make it go back after using all the applications I use? *What else can I try? Is there a way to purge Video Memory like you purge Ram? I've done the NVRAM reset but that doesn't seem to help a lot. If someone could explain how this Video Memory thing works I would greatly appreciate it, maybe I don't have a complete understanding of it. Here are my system specs: Macbook Pro Retina (Late 2013) OSX 10.11.1 - El Capitan 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7 16 GB DDR3 - RAM NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048MB - running the Web Driver not the OSX default. * I have two monitors plugged into the MBP all the time.
  19. "Asus Announces ZenBook 3, a Retina MacBook Lookalike That is Thinner, Lighter, and Faster" full story including video: http://www.macrumors.com/2016/05/30/asus-zenbook-3-vs-macbook-retina-12-inch/ "ZenBook 3 will be available in the third quarter of 2016, starting at $999 in the U.S. for the base model with an Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. A 512GB SSD model will sell for $1,499, while the top-range Intel Core i7 model with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD will cost $1,999." With the i5 and i7 CPU choices, it might cover some user wishes. I personally wait for the MBP announcements since I am in the market for a laptop and I am debating if I will go the easy way and just spend the money on a MacBook or get a Windows laptop and hope for good hackintosh support What do you guys think - does this laptop have potential?
  20. hi gents. sorry if I post into a wrong forum, but I think this one is best I was able to find here. so my problem : After last big update on 22.12. my track pad is not working at all. I wasn't present when the update happened, but I was told that "everything worked fine, but after reboot, trackpad is not working at all". I tried to reset SMC, reset NVRAM, remove old OS and make a clean install, nothing helps. trackpad sometimes works at the startup like 10-20s, then if stops. Data about the machine : Current OS - High Sierra 10.13.2 Mac BookPro (Retina, 13 inch, mid 2014) Model ID - MacBookPro11,1 Boot ROM - MBP111.0142.B00 SMC - 2.16f68 could you point me to some tool or some how to that would tell me if my HW is workig? how can I check, if my version of SMC or boot ROM is the correct one and is OK? any help appreciated.
